Louring as far as the eye can see
the sky as dark as a stormy sea
when an early gleam of golden light
illuminates the apple tree
Apples swollen with summer rain
the time is ripe for pie again
but Autumn looms with encroaching chill
and ever shorter days.
The patio flowers are fading fast, bright colour has all but disappeared
leaving spent stalks and withered buds. I can’t summon the energy to find happier words than those just written to share with dVerse Open Link Night.
